In the heart of Lincoln, a debate is smouldering that could change the face of the city’s vibrant pub and restaurant scene. The question on everyone’s lips (and perhaps in their lungs): Should smoking be banned in street-facing seating areas outside eateries and watering holes?

To snuff out smoking habits and prevent the younger generation from lighting up, according to reports from national outlets like The Sun.
